1  Re: Wedding Gowns for the... um.. ample? lol in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by JennyBeanie on: March 23, 2006 05:48:05 PM
Congrats on your wedding!
I got married last July and I am not tiny LOL
I went to a clearance rack at a bridal shop in our city and looked for something that caught my eye!
It turned out the only one that I "kinda" liked was a size 6 hmmm only 12 sizes to small....
So I made the back into a corset and added some panels to the back to make it fit... I also changed the sleeves and added more beading...
heres a pic... (if it works...)

Sorry its kinda big...
Anyways... I do not have a before pic right now, but it was a size 6, and I am a 18 in street clothes...
I just hope that it will be resellable when I get around to cleaning it etc, seeing it has been altered etc.

I think the best thing to do is look at styles you like, then go to dress shops see if they have a similar style and work from there,
Or you can get it made, just that tends to end up costing ALOT more, then buying and altering a previously not wearable dress...
If you need help with anything let me know I would love to help you out!!
